Daniel Giffin, 13, center, leads the start of the 15-mile bike ride during the second annual Walk, Run or Roll for Daniel fundraiser at Legacy Loop Gateway Plaza in Colorado Springs on Saturday, March 27, 2021. As an ambassador for Children's Hospital of Colorado, Giffin hosted the fundraiser to benefit the pediatric neurosurgery department and The Daniels Fund. His goal was to raise $2,000 from the event. A total of $3,500 was raised, with $2,000 benefiting the hospital and the remanding benefiting The Daniels Fund, to help with his medical costs. Giffin was diagnosed at age 11 with a brain tumor known as anaplastic ependymoma. He had his sixth brain surgery in February this year, totaling 38 days of radiation in the last two-and-a-half years since his diagnoses. Giffin is currently cancer and tumor free said his mother, Torie Giffin, owner of Buffalo Lodge Bicycle Resort. Daniel's message for others going through the battle with cancer or other medical issues is that God has a plan. "It may not always seem right, or may seem bad or wrong at the time, maybe even make you sad but God has a plan," he shared. (Chancey Bush/ The Gazette)
